Queensland & Northern Territory Branch Committee

The Queensland Branch Committee oversees the operations of ALPMA in Queensland and the Northern Territory, including the organisation of the hugely popular monthly lunchtime seminars, membership administration and working closely with our corporate partners and is supported by a local Secretariat. The Queensland Branch Committee members are all members of ALPMA based in Queensland, who volunteer their time and efforts to help ensure we continue to deliver on our promise to members.

The Queensland Branch Committee meets monthly to six-weekly, and ALPMA members are welcome to attend as observer; please contact us for the upcoming Committee schedule.

If you would like to become more involved with ALPMA, then joining your local Branch Committee is a great way to start.
